Research Expertise

Description

I have been working and researching in the area of sonic arts for many years. Within this time I've created a number of works that have been recognised for your imaginative use of audio technologies and experimental approach to sonic art. My research focuses on new and imaginative ways to diffuse sound for concert, installation, theatre or the recorded artefact. My work crosses many boundaries and is interdisciplinary in nature, I work within a collaborative environment with professionals from the theatre, fine art, film and music. My outputs primarily disseminated through creative artefacts, for fixed and non-fixed media. I am also interested in practice-based pedagogy. I combine constructivist theory with problem, and action-based learning, to create course materials that support individual learning styles and facilitate students to become competent practitioners within a technological field of practice. I have strong industry links within Ireland and continue to build relationships between both practice and academia, this interaction enables graduates a smooth transition into industry or research.
